I jumped on the torrent also but it's not pulling down anything. Should I just switch to the HTTP download instead?

I just replaced Cassandra XFCE edition with the Celena beta 017 and it feels much snappier on my older laptop :D I think I'll wait for stable though.

I have been running this on my older Toshiba laptop for a couple of days now and I do like the responsiveness compared to when I had the Gnome version installed. It's taken a little tweaking but I have Compiz Fusion installed and running correctly at last but I am having two issues still. 1. My iPod...

Thanks for taking a look, I have been searching Online and that output does seem correct. This is the first time I have set up Mint on this particular PC and it hasn't felt as stable as it does on my laptop or other desktop. I wonder if it would be worth trying the Fiesty 64 bit version since I have...

I have an ATI Radeon 9200 PCI in my system (AMD Athlon 64 3800+ w/1.5 GB Ram), and I ran Envy to install the correct driver but my system still seems to be slugish. I checked the xorg.conf file and it still lists the ATI driver but I also see an xorg.conf.fglrx-0 file and xorg.conf.original-0 file d...

PCMCIA Fire wire card

I have 2 port Fire wire card for my laptop that I would like to get working. Currently it does not seem to be recognized when I boot Mint and I haven't been able to find any tips here or in the Ubuntu forums that weren't talking about wireles cards

Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm trying to get Beryl up and running on my laptop again after doing a clean install of Bianca but when I start Beryl through the terminal I get the following message "libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x5b" It's odd because I never had any trouble running Beryl on Bea.

Since I first started messing with Ubuntu I have learned it's best to burn Linux distros at 2x or 4x to avoid install issues.

On an unrelated note I submitted Bianca's release to digg :) hopefully it won't backfire with the site getting dugg to death :?

Thanks for the reply Clem. I did install Ubuntu server and had it running but I felt like I was in over my head. For now I think I'll run Mint on it and have all my finished torrents save to a shared folder that I can access from any of my PCs. At least until I have a better understanding about runn...

It would be cool if the user could change the name somehow during install, it would be a great way to sell it to someone :wink:
